No American politician who has run for president has survived the media and voter hostility that Hillary Rodham Clinton has. She is clearly in a category all her own. But as voters, there are four Hillary groups Americans fall into -- lovers, haters, those who hate to love her and those who love to hate her.
We must look forward to the day when such photoshopped images removing men from political leadership do not reveal empty rooms, but instead depict engaging and inclusive spaces where policy affecting women and men alike can be proposed, debated and progressed.
It's time to stop filling the news with the lists and graphs of how slow the improvement is for women in our country and start by sharing solutions.
Shake it off is shorthand for her campaign strategy. In 2008, Hillary couldn't help herself from responding to Barack Obama's digs. Hillary allowed herself to get pulled into those jabs, but that's not going to happen again. She'll really shake that stuff off and stay on message.
Rebecca Sive is Academic Director of the Women in Public Leadership Executive Education Program, Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago, where she has taught classes on women in politics. She was among Illinois Gov. James R. Thompson's inaugural appointees to the Illinois Human Rights Commission, on which she served for eight years.
Gaining the right to vote was one giant leap for womankind, but only one small step towards equality. Instead of a day of commemoration, I say we approach Women's Equality Day as a day of action to further our quest for true gender equality.

Former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard received a warm welcome when she returned to her homeland of Wales earlier this week. Visiting the Na...
Women's voices in every facet of media are important because they change the conversation by making it more inclusive. Much like their presence in politics, women's presence in news -- as reporters, sources and story subjects -- isn't nearly representative of their presence in our country.
The Turkish Parliament will soon welcome the highest number of women Members of Parliament (MPs) in its history after parliamentary elections held on 7 June 2015. According to initial estimates, the number of women MPs elected to the Turkish Parliament increased from 79 to 98.
Will voters choose a president based on gender? Or on the issues?
I'm very glad I threw my hat into the ring, and I hope I not only brought attention to legislation that working families need, but also to the fact that our state is losing out by not fully utilizing the creative and intellectual capacity of all our residents.
The lessons I've learned from campaigning come from seeing a woman put herself out there to do something bigger than her. They come from seeing women win, some lose, and each of them move the needle toward more inclusive government for everyone. The lessons I've learned are the reasons I know Hillary Clinton has what it takes to resonate with the American people.
